LOVERS of Vee Dubs turned out in their hundreds recently for Beaulieu’s second Simply VW rally
LOVERS of Vee Dubs turned out in their hundreds recently for Beaulieu’s second Simply VW rally in the grounds of the attraction.
Sponsored by Breeze Volkswagen Group, the event attracted 425 Volkswagens from early Beetles, buggies, Karmann Ghias and campers, through Polos, Golfs and Jettas to modern-day Passats, panel vans and motorhomes.
From families enjoying a relaxing day out, to enthusiasts comparing their Vee Dubs, there was plenty to offer rally participants and Beaulieu’s day visitors.
Classic VW camper vans made a strong showing in the line-up, with their owners unfolding camping chairs, brewing up drinks on their stoves and enjoying the day’s sunshine at the event on Sunday, June 26.
Split-screen Type 2 campers were joined by the later, hugely popular “bay window” versions, along with the squarer Type 25 and modern day T4, T5 and T6, while camper conversions by Dormobile, Westfalia, Devon and Autosleeper could also be seen.
